SpareTires - A New Source of Biofuel?

OK - how many of you saw this coming?

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

"Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital reportedly has signed a deal to supply
Norwegian entrepreneur Lauri Venoy with 3,000 gallons-per-week of
liposuction leftovers harvested by its clinics. This bio-fat could produce
2,600 gallons of biodiesel, sufficient to fuel a Hummer for a year."

Have we really gotten that desperate?

My initial reaction is oh, ick , gross, yuck, fplaatch!
However, reusing and recycling and is good thing.
I just have to wonder; if some bio diesel fueled vehicles smell of french fries what will this smell of?

Is this more or less sane than foreskin face cream?

Gah! ok, the foreskin face cream is pretty disturbing.

You know, mombat... that thought had crossed my mind as well.

Soylent fuel IS FAT PEOPLE! I bet the exhaust smell like a sweaty arm pit.
